Troubleshoot Bosch DHD8005UC downdraft system which has ceased to raise & lower automatically?

While I don't have a schematic, there is not much to the system. In my case, I removed the entire unit (stationary and mobile parts) and cleaned all the grease out. Be prepared to do this outside on a picnic table with a paint scraper and grease bucket.

Our unit would raise ok, then go right back down. There is a cam that raises the unit up and down. That same cam impacts a couple of micro switches. The push button switch over comes the raise limit switch when it's time to go back down. The limit switches (one up one down) have small metal tabs that get disturbed by grease and increased weight of the grease. After cleaning, just bend the upper limit tab just a little so it is tighter. On my mine, the unit would lift, then coast over the top of the cam profile and go back down. By bending the metal tab connected to the raise limit switch so the switch was more fully engaged sooner (earlier) to the top of stroke, the unit will stop where it should. Pressing the button again by passes the raise limit switch so the cam continues and the unit goes back down. I wish I had taken pictures when I did this. It really is very simple.

The trim plate or trim piece is held by part number 38 the slider.The trim plate is just fitted from one side,the other side is just stuck hard,you can say like welded.But its easy to remove,just loosen it from one side and give bit **** from other side and it will be loose.In the inner side of trim plate there are few clips that held it tight.But this clips are very delicate,if this clips are not there,then also trim will fit properly.--------- You will just have to slide the trim plate from part number 39 and it will be loose. See fig for slider, part number 39:--- helpmech_97.jpg see fig for trim plate:-- helpmech_98.jpg -------------- The switch is just held by screws and jumper wire,plug in connectors.This are just pull out connecting wires.And easy to re fit.----------- Check out keep updated.Thanks/.Helpmech.

How do you replace?

Kitchen hood replacement can be completed easily with a family member or a friend. While you may wonder why anyone would replace a kitchen hood, the answer usually is simple. Here is how to replace a kitchen hood.
Tools Needed

  • New Range/Kitchen Hood
  • Screws
  • Screwdriver
  • Friend
  • Wiring Nuts
  • Circuit Tester

Warning: Remember that you are dealing with electricity, so stay away from water and use all safety precautions issued by the manufacturer.
Step 1 - Shut off Electricity

Remember to turn off the electrical supply to the old kitchen hood. You will need to do this via the circuit breaker box. Wait for 10 to 20 minutes and then test the wires with the circuit tester to double check that no electricity is being supplied to the kitchen hood.

Step 2 - Remove Old Hood

After you know for a fact that it is not receiving an electrical current, you can begin the process of removing the older kitchen hood. You should first take off the electrical wiring cover that is located by the light fixture. Then have your family member or friend hold up the old kitchen hood while you remove any screws or bolts from it. Once that is done, you can then freely slide it off.
Step 3 - Check Wiring

Double check that you have at least 12 inches of wiring to connect your kitchen hood to the wall. It should be noted that if you have a kitchen hood without vents, proceed to step 5 next.
Step 4 - Find the Ducts

If your new kitchen hood has vents, you will need to locate the fan or vent duct. Once you have found it, you can open up the vent hole where it will belong.
Step 5 - Wires

Open up the covering for the wiring and put the covering in a safe area for easy reach.
Step 6 - Install the New Kitchen Hood

Have your friend or family member hold up the kitchen hood and mark the areas where the screws or bolts will be. Then have them put down the kitchen hood and screw in the screws half way into the holes. After that, you can slide in the kitchen hood.
Step 7 - Route Wiring

Lightly pull the wiring through the proper holes and connect both black wires from the new kitchen hood to the black wire from the wall with a wire nut. Then connect the two white wires from the hood with the white wire from the wall, again using a wire nut. Next, connect the green wire to the green ground screw. Then place the wire covering back on.
Step 8 - Tighten Screws

Finish tightening the screws in place.
Step 9 - Test

Check to make sure the fan and light work. If it is supposed to vent outside, make sure that the air is leaving the vent with no issues. If something does not work proper, repeat steps 6 and 7 until everything works well. Remember that you will be working with electrical equipment, so follow safety measures issued by the state or the city.

Can this be installed over an island?

Bring a focal point to your kitchen by having an island range hood, combining function and elegant form. A suspended hood is also an efficient way to vent
grease, odors and smoke to the outside from a island stovetop while you cook. You can install an island range hood in just a few hours with the right tools
and knowledge.
1.Wear safety glasses and work gloves. Turn off the electricity to your kitchen at the circuit panel. Cover the circuit breaker with a piece of electrical
tape to prevent people from turning the on switch while you are at work.
2.Lay work drop cloths on your cooktop and floor to catch dust and debris. Mark the duct opening with a pencil in the ceiling, where the island hood will be
installed. Be sure the opening is centered directly above your cooktop. Cut the opening using a hacksaw.
3.Go up to the roof, using a cat's claw and hammer to remove stucco, tiles, sheathing and insulation to make way for the steel venting duct. Drop a
plumb bob down the roof, making sure the line is straight down for the ductwork.
4.Follow the manufacturer's instructions for locations, installing 2-by-2 wooden blocks in the ceiling to hold the ductwork hangers.
5.Install the venting duct from the outside of the home, down to the location of the exhaust vents on the island hood. The ducts should easily slip into each
other. Secure all the duct sections with duct sealing putty, using a putty knife.
6.Screw a roof cap on the end of the duct at the roof. Seal any openings or gaps where the roof, ceiling and duct meet with silicon sealant. Let the sealant
dry, then paint with colors matched to the surrounds.
7.Place your hood upside-down on the floor, with the fan and filter facing upward. Locate and unscrew the metal electrical box cover on the island range
hood, to expose the wiring
8.Install the hood cover to the load-bearing ceiling frame with the package hardware through the four inside mounting corner flanges on the cover.
9.Measure what will be the distance from the bottom of your hood to the cooktop; it should not exceed 30 inches for exhaust efficiency. Have a helper hold
the hood in place while you attach the hood on the hood cover using the included screws. Use a level be sure the hood is level as mounted.
10.Connect the electrical wiring by consulting the manufacturer's suggestions or hire an electrician if you are not familiar with house wiring. Tuck the wires neatly in the hood electrical box and then replace the cover, after connecting the hood wires to the wall wiring.
11.Remove the electrical tape on the circuit breaker, turn on the electricity to your kitchen and test your island range hood.

Hood does not pop up when depressing the push button

The filter elements are mostly likely not correctly in place so the latch is not tripping the micro-switch. Using a flash light this was clear by looking down into the front edge of the vent unit. I could see the element edge and the latch of the filter element. It wasn't latched tight. I used a paint scraper (two). Gently i nserted it while also using a flash light to see. I was able to lever and jiggle the filter element back into place and latch it. This activates the control. Then the unit would raise. I double checked the filter latches to be sure they were tightly closed.
